PARIS (AP) French officials called for vigilance but warned against jumping to conclusions Monday after a pair of weekend attacks one in which a driver ran down 13 bystanders, and another in which a recent convert to Islam knifed police officers.

The driver, who had a history of psychological problems, was arrested following the attack in Dijon, while the assailant who stabbed the officers outside the city of Tours was shot to death by police. None of the victims died.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Monday that the investigation in Dijon is just beginning "and the motives are unclear." But his visit to the city was an indication of the government's heightened concerns days after Islamic extremists renewed calls for individuals to strike in the West.
